Overview of workshop

Cognitive Analytic Therapy’s (CAT) collaborative and empowering approach is highly applicable in helping teens and young people (ages 15 to 25 or thereabouts). This workshop will consider the developmental needs, alongside the socio-political pressures young people face today through the relational theory of CAT and how this can be used to assist young people to reflect on their difficulties and revise unhelpful patterns. The workshop will cover how CAT’s approach can assist in engaging young people who are often considered complex, are coerced to attend therapy by their support system and, understandably, less open to talk therapy. It will provide an overview of how CAT can be applied and adapted in working alongside teens and young people, their families and support system.

The workshop will include case studies, video material and experiential activities to promote learning and discussion.

Aims and learning outcomes

This one-day skills-based course provides an opportunity to

  • reflect and practice skills in engaging young people using the relational framework of CAT
  • gain knowledge in adapting CAT tools with young people to assist in relational reflection, and
  • consider the developmental needs, pressures and joys that young people bring to therapy and how the CAT approach assists us to help young people feel heard and hopeful

Lee’s day will provide an emphasis on skills in relation to:

  • formulating with young people using the relational framework of CAT
  • use of self to engage young people and reflect together
  • using CAT’s relational approach to supervise self and others, and
  • responding therapeutically to young people and their families who are often seen as chaotic and complex
